This is a national traveling exhibition of an original edition of one of the world’s most famous and treasured books, Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, & Tragedies, better known as the First Folio. This is one of the most valuable books in the world, and is often referred to as “the most important work in the English language.”

Drs. Williams and Bundesen detail the many events surrounding the First Folio exhibit, which include classical theater performances of Shakespeare's “Hamlet” and “The Winter's Tale,” public lectures with international Shakespeare scholars, concerts, films, world class theater training, and readings. There will be lots of fun events including a Comic Book Shakespeare workshop, a Treasure Hunt in downtown Santa Fe, a Valentine's Day extravaganza inspired by Shakespeare, and more!
